- Failure to Respond Appropriately to All Alleged Violations – citation #F610 date October 15, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to follow the facility’s policy regarding the removal of an alleged abuser from the resident care areas.” The nursing home also failed to “provide and document the conclusion of the investigation within five days of reporting the incident to the Department of Public Health (DPH).”
The deficient practice involved an incident “of alleged abuse [of a resident]” and “had the potential to place the resident’s safety at risk.” The investigation involved a cognitively intact resident who stated that she had informed a Licensed Vocational Nurse “of alleged abuse by her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).”
The Licensed Vocational Nurse confirmed that on or around 7:30 PM on September 28, 2018, the resident “informed him of the alleged abuse incident” involving the CNA and stated “he informed his Nursing Supervisor, a Registered Nurse (RN), about the alleged abuse and that the resident requested for [that CNA] to be removed from her care.” The Licensed Vocational Nurse stated that the CNA “was reassigned from the resident’s care and worked until the end of the shift.”
The investigators interviewed the Registered Nurse, who stated that “any alleged abuse must be reported to the Administrator and the alleged abuser removed from the unit as soon as possible.” The Director of Staff Development confirmed that the CNA “worked his whole shift, in the same unit as the resident,” that made the allegation of abuse.
The Administrator verified, “it was important to remove the abuser from resident care to make sure the well-being of the resident was taken care of along with her safety.” The state surveyors asked the Administrator for “the results of the investigation and a fax which indicated the report was sent to the Department of Public Health within five working days of the incident.” The Administrator stated that “the conclusion report had not been sent to the Department of Public Health.”
